Wilderness Adventure Spring Thaw Trail Run @ Wilderness Adventure at Eagles Landing
Mar 10 @ 9:00 am – 3:00 pm
DESCRIPTION

Nestled in the highlands of southwest Virginia on 500 acres in the Blue Ridge Mountains near Roanoke sits the adventure retreat Wilderness Adventure at Eagle Landing (WAEL), the base camp for this awesome “intro to ultra” endurance trail run. You have the choice of a 3-hour or 6-hour trail run, solo or with a team, on this beautiful, spectator-friendly 6-mile loop with a mix of single, double track, and pavement. And because WAEL is first and foremost a camp, there will be plenty of adventure pre- and post-race and for spectators, too!

Our 6th annual Spring Thaw Trail Series offers five weekends of trail runs (and mountain bike races, too, if you like) on three different trail networks to challenge all abilities. Race once or a few times, or tackle all the Thaws (at an amazing price)! Want to mountain bike, too? Awesome. Check out our Spring Thaw MTB events held on the same day at Wilderness Adventure at Eagle Landing, Early Mountain Vineyards, Conway Robinson State Forest, and Pocahontas!

DESCRIPTION

Is it time for something new? Try having some fun in the woods in an adventure race! Because you gotta start somewhere we’ve created the Tenderfoot Adventure Race—an event for beginners and families to mountain bike, trek, strategize, navigate, perform challenges, and paddle by following a map with marked checkpoints. Basically, it’s an all-terrain scavenger hunt with a handsome reward…great prizes, muddy legs, a sweaty body, and proud smiles like you may not have seen in a while.

This AR will bring good old-fashioned fun back! You’ll be staying on the trails within Wilderness Adventure at Eagle Landing (WAEL), exploring their camp through hardwood trees, steep terrain, 1.5 hours from DC and about 35 miles from Roanoke. Once you and your team have found as many checkpoints as you can in the allotted time, join us for delicious post-race food and the awards ceremony.

The morning of the race, we’ll give you a map with checkpoints and a list of “Rules of Travel.” This gives you clues to checkpoints and tells you how you’ll get to them–by trekking, paddling, or mountain biking. Teams will have 3 hours to find as many checkpoints as possible. The highest point accumulation in the shortest amount of time will determine ranking. Once the teams have found all of the required checkpoints, they sprint back to cross the finish line.
We offer two “types” of Tenderfoot categories: Family and Adventure Class. The family team (with 2- or 3-person teams) must have at least one member younger than age 16 and participates in a shorter, easier version of the Adventure Class course. (It’s still an achievement for teams but not meltdown inducing.) The Adventure Class (soloist or 2- or 3-person teams) offers a longer, more challenging course with a lot of optional opportunities to really have an adventure and hone those navigation and trail skills. Families will have 3 hours and Adventure Class participants will have 4 hours to complete the race. (Note: We have found that if the youngest team member is 13 or older, Adventure Class is a better choice, offering more of a challenge.)
